Prenatal Genetics

Private Genetics 7.jpg

A time of joy and excitement can quickly change to a time of concern and fear. A high risk screening test, a congenital problem detected on routine antenatal ultrasound, a genetic diagnosis made. Each step can be overwhelming; what does this mean for my child? What problems may they have? What does it mean for me? what does it mean for the rest of my family?

We work in partnership with you, and your obstetrician, to steer through these questions and offer our expertise in the area of congenital and childhood genetic disorders.

Prenatal screening and diagnostic tools are used to determine if your baby is developing in the usual way. The NSW Centre for Genetics Education has published a great resource outlining these screening and diagnostic tools available to you during pregnancy to help identify any concerns with your pregnancy.
